Product Info

Salomon Dialogue Snowboard Boots 2012: The lightweight, low-profile contender that wins year after year, the Salomon Dialogue Snowboard Boots have been taken to the next level. The Salomon Dialogue Snowboard Boots now feature a full Reflex Construction that minimizes unwanted pressure and pain while naturally allowing movement from heel to calf and a new Lo-Fi outsole for superior grip and feel. These boots are ready to hit the mountain running.

Product Details

Flex Rating and Fit

With a flex rating of 6 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff), the Salomon Dialogue Snowboard Boots have a medium flex making for a responsive boot that is also extremely cushioning and won’t weigh you down.

Reflex Construction: lower Reflex panels minimize strap/pad pressure and pain. Upper Reflex features a cuff construction that naturally moves from heel to calf and provides a perfectly powerful flexing cuff that never buckles or binds

Construction

Lo-Fi outsole is a new, low profile outsole that is inspired by the best skate shoes. The Lo-Fi outsole features strategic dual EVA dampening combined with rubber for extra grip.

The Mystic Footbed 3 is the only antimicrobial footbed in snowboarding that increases blood circulation, prevents fatigue, and embodies natural healing from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head. Salomon likes to say the Mystic Footbed is “Pseudoscience in your socks.”

Liner and Lacing

Powerlace Pro lacing system is one of the first auto locking systems in snowboarding. To tighten you simply pull once through the center of the boot tongue to lace and lock your boot.

Balance Level 2 Liner features a forefoot harness and is built with Custom Fit Foam

Special Features

The Salomon Dialogue Snowboard Boots feature outer materials that, combined with the streamlined lacing system, make the boot sleek and fast looking; no bulky looking snowboard boots here!

My first pair of snowboard boots were Salomon Dialoges (1998-99) and I wore the hell out of them. Since that first pair finally wore out, I have tried a couple different boots; Vans, a pair of Salomon Malamutes (didnt fit in the front of my drake bindings and so high they broke my fibula) and I even tried to buy an old pair of Dialoges from ebay (seller said new, he lied, all packed out). I tried the Malamutes because I believed stiffer is better for the type of resort and backcountry riding I do, (JH Mountain Resort, Grand Targhee and Teton Pass) this was not the case. I missed the flex that the Dialoge had (previous shattered ankle). So the point of the story is I could have saved a lot of sore feet and sketchy riding if I had just got a new pair of these! I consider myself to have an average size 10 foot and these fit perfect. Oh, and the current lacing system is an improvement on the old, not hard to get dialed in and stays secure.

Wore around the house for a few hours before I took them to the mountain. Great overall fit, performed awesome, and super comfy. I didn't think to much of having to re-tighten frequently since they were brand new until after a couple of times up it was only my left boot and would now loosen up after every run. I realized the mechanism that locks the laces wouldn't grab at all. Simply wrapping the laces around an extra time kept me riding that day. Evo customer service was awesome and gave me some parts from an other boot to keep me going until the end of the season at which point they can take care of warranty stuff. With exception of this the overall construction seems to be solid. If this is an isolated incident, and Salomon takes care of it 5 stars for what I paid on clearance. Size 10.5 fits fine with med/lg Bent Metal Venoms.

Comments about Salomon Dialogue Snowboard Boots 2012:

Overall these are good boots. They are very well made and are of great quality. I wear a size 11.5 shoe and the size 11.5 Dialogue boot fit me perfectly. These are very comfortable, warm, and snug boots. They offer great support to your feet and ankles.

My ONLY issue is with the outer shell of the boot. The outer shell is pretty big and bulky. I have size L/XL Union bindings and had to set them to their largest settings to accomodate these boots. Since the boots are size 11.5 and the bindings go up to a size 14, I don't like that I have to have my bindings set to the largest settings. The rear of the boot has to squeeze into heel cup/high back, but I think over time this will diminish.

      The boots are great. Love the fit, look, lacing system, comfort and warmth. Only negative was the clip you pull to tighten the boots came off while pulling but it wasn't a difficult fix.

      If you're buying a big size ( i have 11) get XL bindings, i had to return some L bindings cause the boot didnt fit them, this boot is a bit wider than others. Got some union XL and they feel great!

        Went from a BOA lacing system to this boot. Takes just a little bit more time but the lacing does tighten well. I wore them for 2 1/2 hrs around house before I took out for the first time and they were comfortable.

        Second pair of dialogues. Love them. I wear them a lot to teach in, and never have to re-tighten. Warm, dry, and comfy. The only draw back is I think they have a larger footprint than my previous pair. So they didn't fit in my cartel m/l binding. So I had to get new bindings, bummer I know. Overall love these boots.

            This is a really good boot, very comfortable and warm. I accidentally bought a size too big and it still made for a good ride. It has a litlle more flex than I wanted and is perfect for beginning riders.

                  My first pair of snowboard boots were Salomon Dialoges (1998-99) and I wore the hell out of them. Since that first pair finally wore out, I have tried a couple different boots; Vans, a pair of Salomon Malamutes (didnt fit in the front of my drake bindings and so high they broke my fibula) and I even tried to buy an old pair of Dialoges from ebay (seller said new, he lied, all packed out). I tried the Malamutes because I believed stiffer is better for the type of resort and backcountry riding I do, (JH Mountain Resort, Grand Targhee and Teton Pass) this was not the case. I missed the flex that the Dialoge had (previous shattered ankle). So the point of the story is I could have saved a lot of sore feet and sketchy riding if I had just got a new pair of these!
